What is the first book you ever read/remember reading?
To be honest, the first book I really, truly remember reading was this old clothbound novella edition of Cinderella that my mom had. I read it in one day (which I was quite proud of at the time, because I wasn’t the fastest reader and I was like eight), and I got absolutely obsessed with it. I literally sat down that day and started writing my own fairytale, which I’m sure was terrible in many ways, and then I reread the book in one sitting a few days later.

I’m thrilled to be hosting authors Lucy Ivison and Tom Ellen to celebrate the release of their new book, Never Evers! Their debut novel, Lobsters, was hilarious and sweet, and I’m sure Never Evers will have more of their signature funny dual narrative and awkward moments!
